Once again the Triangle has a chance of snow. It would seem my snow dance worked. The latest from RDU forecast discussion:

 MODEL QPF HAS COME INTO SLIGHTLY BETTER CONSENSUS DEPICTING A QUARTER TO A HALF INCH WATER EQUIVALENTACROSS THE NORTHERN HALF OFCENTRAL NORTH CAROLINA LATE TONIGHT INTO EARLY WED. CUTTING BACK ONTHE QPF DUE TO ANTECEDENT CONDITIONS AND FAIRLY FAST SURFACE LOW MOVEMENT YIELDS WATER EQUIVALENT AMOUNTS 0.15 TO 0.30 OF AN INCH. USING SNOW RATIOS OF 18:1 IN THE BEGINNING OF THE EVENT…TRENDING TO 22:1 AFTER 12Z WED EQUATES TO SNOW AMOUNTS OF AROUND AN INCH IN THE TRIAD TO SOUTH OF THE TRIANGLE WITH AMOUNTS CLOSE TO 2 OR 3 INCHES IN THE TRIANGLE AREA…AND 3-4 INCHES NEAR THE VA BORDER.

But if the Triangle north is in the sweet spot of the storm those numbers may need to be adjusted and quess what? If you take the models literally we are.
